1943

Issued by the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP), this foreigner’s employment book was made for Michael Garjainow, one of many children forcibly transported to Germany and compelled to work for German firms during the war. Michael was born on Christmas Day, 1928, in northeastern Ukraine. His work permit lists his citizenship as “undeclared, Eastern worker” (ungeklart, Ostarbeiter). “Eastern worker” was a derogatory Nazi neologism for Russians and Ukrainians. At age 13, Michael started working at the Krupp Krawa plant in Essen until it was bombed in March 1943. He was then taken to work at the Elmag plant in Alsace, which had been seized by the Krupp firm as an alternative production site for German military tractors and antiaircraft guns.
